I realised a while ago that every single one of my friends had areas in their life that made them sad. For some it was their marriage, for some it was a their single status, for some it was their kids and the pressure of being a mum, for some it was work or career, the struggle to progress as a working mum, for some they had issues with family members for others it was their body image or their lack of self-esteem, still others struggled with faith systems and workplaces that treated them differently because they were women.
This is normal, I understand that. We're not happy in every area of life all the time. Sure.
The thing that made me sad was that they were simply accepting that this particular area was painful and sad and that there was nothing that could be done. Week on week and month and month and, for many, year on year they struggled as moms and wives and sisters and employees and business owners and Christians and ex-wives and often just as women.
I'm not happy.
In fact, I'm kind of pissed. Because so many of them are living in cages created by the expectations of others - of who they have to be and what they can't do and what they should look like and what they can't change.
And when I get pissed, I create.
And so I created a process using coaching tools and ideas to help people get out of these areas they feel stuck and sad and squeezed into. Not just for women, but for all people. Because I want people to thrive and live free and find happiness and fulfillment.
